Red Russian

60 days — A rare variety with red frilly leaves and purple veins. Excellent flavor. Said to have been introduced into Canada by Russian traders in about 1885. Frost tolerant. Each packet contains one gram, which is approximately 250 seeds.
Unbelievably Hardy!
I have grown this variety for a few years. I have mini-hoop houses that I use over my raised beds but had never attempted to keep this growing all winter until 2018-2019. We have had some stretches of very cold weather-teens or single-digit days with -20ºF nights. I never expected this kale to survive but it has! Now that we are nearly into Spring, it has rejuvenated itself and has taken off again! Great variety and extremely hardy!

Greatest Kale EVER!!!
This Kale is tender, flavorful, and amazingly prolific. I cannot praise it highly enough. If you love kale, then this is what you want to grow. My harvest from two plants is staggering, and it is tender and delicious. You can eat this fresh or cooked. One of my plants decided to send out a second main stem, and my harvest was instantly doubled. I am so happy with this variety. GROW IT!

Sweet and Prolific
In just the right spot this variety from Victory Seed Co. lasted five seasons! Very tender and very sweet especially following a frost. Seeds remained viable until I ran out (3 years). I attribute this to packaging by Victory Seeds® in one of their packs we purchased.

Agreed, The Best Kale Ever!
This Kale is delicious. So tender & sweet you can eat it right off the plant--perfect for salads. And it looks simply beautiful too; a gorgeous red & green coloring.

This is the first kale I have ever grown. I planted it in January and produced through May. By March and April it was producing all we could use on only two plants. Delicious in kale chips.
